Jeera Ajwaini Aloo

Jeera Ajwani Aloo is a tasty and flavourful side dish to serve with Roti and Rice. Usually in most of the houses, either cumin/jeera or ajwani seeds / carom is used as tadka for side dish, but I learnt this simple yet flavourful recipe from one of my co-blogger Jolly Makker's page. I had bookmarked this recipe long back and waiting for the right time to prepare. Luckily for the Recipe Swap Challenge event, I was paired with Jolly Makker who blogs at Recipe swap challenge is an interesting event hosted by two the lovely bloggers Vidya Narayan and Jolly Makkar. The concept of the theme was to recreate the recipe from our partner's webpage.

So here is the delicious potato recipe from my partner Jolly's page. The potato tasted so delicious and the addition of ajwain gave a refreshing taste to the dish. Thanks Jolly for posting such a delicious recipe on your page.

Ingredients :

3 Potatoes, Cut into desired shape 
1 1/2 Tbsp Oil 
2 Tsp Cumin seeds / Jeera 

Garlic Knots

After April month swap post "Hong Kong Noodle Soup", here comes my second month participation in an interesting event Food Bloggers Recipe Swap hosted by Amber Dawn. For May month, I was paired with an amazing blogger Sapana who blogs at The concept of the theme was to select one recipe from my partner's page and recreate the recipe. It took so much time for me to choose one recipe from her page while all her recipes looked so inviting and tempting. Finally tried these beautiful baked garlic knots which was a super hit in my place. These garlic knots are perfect with hot tea and also, can be served as breakfast along with salsa, jam or sauce. The actual recipe calls for the parsley, but I have replaced it with coriander leaves in garlic butter. Thank you Sapana for sharing such a delicious baked snack.

Aloo Palda / Himachali Cuisine

Aloo palda is a pahari style potato curry cooked along with the spices and yogurt. This creamy and delicious curry pairs perfectly with hot plain rice or Roti. Though the actual recipe included more amount of Elachi, I have reduced and made changes according to my family's taste bud. This recipe goes to my favourite event "shhh cooking secretly challenge" which is happening among a group of bloggers. Click HERE to get the detailed information and recipes which I had posted so far for the event. When we got the theme for May month as Himachali cuisine, Aloo palda was my first thought and luckily got the same secret ingredients ( Yogurt and Aloo ) from my partner Vidya Narayan. Vidya is an amazing blogger who blogs at and have to mention that I am a huge fan of her writing. Her writing gives a lively feel while reading her post which is truly a great talent. And also, her page is loaded with many more delicious and inviting recipes. Don't mi…
